  1. Is that where the Luminarc name came from Robin? Cool glass Fran.
  2. Thomas my family is cringing (again!) as I start singing. Always making me smile....thanks so much.
  3. Mickey's voice was the right pitch too. Way cool Kerry.
  4. It is fantastic. Great detail.
  5. Cute. I would call the amethyst purple patch.
  6. Is your Buddha bronze?
  7. It is a fantastic brooch. Congratulations on your find.
  8. Wonderful silver work!
  9. Had to start singing Thomas! Thanks again :)
  10. A true clown.....very emotive.
  11. You have a great imagination Peggy but that works better. Probably a nicer name than bacteria slide.....
  12. Thanks Scott. Yes, a lot of clever work here.
  13. Thanks Peggy. My brain possibly looks like this! and Mike.....exactly right! I may now call this decor "bacteria slide". What do you think?
  14. Hmm. Thinking again maybe it's Japanese. Australia imported more glass from Japan than anywhere in the 60s and I think that very thick gold and those flowers look more Japanese than Italian. Does it ...
  15. It's a wonderful set. I'm not sure but think it may be Italian made.
  16. Thanks Sue for the comments - missed you! You know lots of Japanese glass has grown on me and now when others see some of my glass and don't get it I have a "huh?" moment before I remember it takes t...
  17. I adore your cat - so Italian! Look at the face!? Just missed eating the jade fish I think. They all have great faces....look at the glass fish's excitement at finding a fish next door! Who made it...
  18. Wilbat? Doesn't look his style however.
  19. rest in pieces
  20. Too scared....no idea...... But,....I really like it!
  21. Great research guys. What an incredible chair and so good for 160 years of age!
  22. Adorable
  23. I just have to love this. Gorgeous colour and an interesting shape for swung glass.
  24. Gorgeous label.
  25. Absolutely delightful figurine Alan! So beautifully modelled. You sure have a good eye!
  26. I see this and imagine it full of glittering SC pieces. Wouldn't that be a beautiful sight!
  27. Interesting post. Thanks!
  28. Thomas your record collection is amazing. Not only do you have lots of records in many genres, you seem to also have lots of these special edition ones. Great work!
  29. Fantastic plates. I love the design of the white cranes.
  30. Very sensuous shape for this brooch. Beautiful Ken!
  31. Jolie laide!
  32. Sure is beautiful.
  33. Wow - some work in this Dean. I don't know how they make that scale like pattern.....clever. Even the sommerso is complex. A skilled artist yet I am not sure where from. It doesn't have a Murano f...
  34. Now you called be truly called a basket case Mike! Sorry...a bad joke there. I can see why you picked this up. It is beautifully made and useful! (unlike most of my stuff)
  35. Pretty!
  36. How could it be any more feminine Peggy!?
  37. This is a tomobako and it is more likely that a n artisan piece of ceramic came in it. I posted about these great boxes here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/165290-the-art-of-japanese-packa...
  38. Thanks again Katherine. Elisabeth thanks for the love. You to OGF. Keep looking, they turn up occasionally.
  39. I get ya Sue! Great analogy.
  40. I am not familiar with rubber cars so here's some questions. Do they go hard and crack with age? Or do they survive OK if kept out of the sun? How did they colour the rubber?
  41. Great post. Wonderful ephemera!
  42. Hi Sue! nice to hear from you. I know nothing about these (as you would expect) except they are sweet as.
  43. It's a fantastic piece of Chalet Alan! You always have great finds.
  44. Indeed a garden of delight Anne!
  45. Very nice Lise!
  46. I know Indian Tree was a popular pattern in the second half of the 19th century , and as Myott seemed to stay on trend I would guess this is from around then. It's a favorite of mine in textiles too.
  47. I love the swirly glass around the base.
  48. I love spaghetti ceramics. They make me fell all smiley.
  49. I love the rim trim - it perfectly balances the bowl. Well done Rick!
  50. I actually really like the geometrics of the pattern on this one - in the vaseline glass it looks fab. My question is: how good would the roses have to be to not be overshadowed by any of these bowls?
